    M4/M4A1 contract awards

    From today's DoD contract announcements:

    "Colt's Manufacturing Company LLC, West Hartford, Connecticut, was awarded an $88,607,109 modification (P00008) to contract W15QKN-15-D-0102 for M4 and M4A1 carbines. Work will be performed in West Hartford, Connecticut, with an estimated completion date of Sept. 25, 2020. Fiscal 2019 and 2020 operations and maintenance, Army funds in the amount of $88,607,109 were obligated at the time of the award. U.S. Army Contracting Command, New Jersey, is the contracting activity.

    FN America LLC, Columbia, South Carolina, was awarded an $88,607,109 modification (P00009) to contract W15QKN-15-D-0072 for M4 and M4A1 carbines. Work will be performed in Columbia, South Carolina, with an estimated completion date of Sept. 25, 2020. Fiscal 2019 and 2020 operations and maintenance, Army funds in the amount of $88,607,709 were obligated at the time of the award. U.S. Army Contracting Command, New Jersey, is the contracting activity."

    Note that these are actually modifications to existing contracts. In the M4/M4A1 world, are these considered substantial amounts or just drops in the bucket?

    I thought the Army was switching from M4's to all M4A1's?

    That's what I was wondering. Is this just part of the upgrading of M4 and M4A1's to the newest upper receiver? David

    I recently became the 1SG of an Infantry line company and inspecting the rifles I discovered that all the M4s had been converted to A1s, at least the lowers, couldn’t tell by the uppers.

    They weren't a little more hefty? You can tell the M4 profile difference from an A1/SOCOM barrel. I'd wager that if they did changes to lower the uppers are A1's too.
